Parole Board May Decide on Troy Davis Execution

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed tomorrow night after having been on death row for two decades for the murder of Savannah, Georgia police officer Mark Allen. His family, friends and supporters worldwide — including Rev. Al Sharpton — are fighting desperately for his clemency. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles may make a decision today on whether Davis will live or die.

Charles Edwards, reporter for WABE public radio in Atlanta, reports on the latest developments in the case.

one giant failure for humankind.
